Creative Haverhill, a non-profit arts organization in the town of Haverhill, MA, commissioned a two-sided mural on an existing PVC sign structure in a local green space. The sign is an irregular shape, but the painting covers approximately 30 square feet. Acrylic mural paints were provided by the commissioner.
This double-sided painting was created as a means of repurposing an old Creative Haverhill sign that featured an outdated map of the city. Rather than tearing the sign down, it was transformed into artwork featuring a hand entwined by a morning glory vine, a flower that symbolizes strength and resilience. The work was painted, in part, during the city's September Art Walk event in order to organize community interaction, discussion, and engagement.
